Tequila Can Help Us Lose Weight!
WOW! I was very skeptical when I first read this on Facebook. The website article is: A New Study Shows That Drinking Tequila Could Actually Help You Lose Weight.
I read it and it made so much sense I researched it. Agave produces a great sweetener for everyone with special benefits for diabetics. Tequila is made from agave, therefore tequila is good for us. Agave syrup is full of agavins, a natural fructose that actually lowers blood sugar levels and makes us feel fuller – then we lose weight.
I’ve seen agave syrup in all my local grocery stores and there’s all kinds of tequila in the liquor stores, too. But I would worry about whatever I was mixing with my tequila. Most mixers are high in sugar, too. But I have discovered that tequila makes a great Caesar!
45 ml (1 1/2 oz.) tequila
120 ml (4 oz.) Clamato juice
A few drops of Worcestershire sauce
A few drops of red Tabasco sauce
1 lime quarter
1 drunken bean
Frost the rim of a highball glass with the celery salt.
Combine all the ingredients, except for the lime quarter and the bean, in a highball glass containing a few ice cubes. Stir using a mixing spoon.
Garnish with the lime quarter and drunken bean.
They are delicious and count as a vegetable serving, more if you add more beans. So I’m going to try the agave syrup instead of su
gar but I don’t personally use much sugar so it might have to be the tequila. As it is regular, distilled alcohol has no carbs so maybe I’ll end up a skinny alcoholic!
Thanks for listening and limit your alcohol! ;D Diane
